Long Beach Island in Ocean County
Barnegat Light is a stupendous photography location. Barnegat Lighthouse in Barnegat Lighthouse State Park is located on the northern tip of Long Beach Island in Ocean County. You can do photography here during the day and at night.
We love this location because of the dark skies, which allow us to shoot the milky way during the ideal conditions. This area is quiet mid-week, and the crowds are not huge, which is perfect when trying to relax while also doing some shooting. You can sit on the beach by day and shoot the milky way by night if you choose. You have many options. There is a great motel just a few blocks from the Barnegat Light House.
